Rainy Days and Mondays

Right now I am reading the Mortal Instruments book The City of Bones by Cassandra Clare.  If you haven't read the series, I highly recommend it.  It is about a girl named Clary Fray who discovers that her mother is not who she thought she was, nor herself for that matter.  What she discovers is that she is part of a world that she didn't even know existed...the world of Shadowhunters, vampires, warewolves and demons.  Read it to discover how Clary fits into this world and how she can save her mother who has suddenly disappeared.

I am also listening to the audiobook The False Prince by Jennifer Nielsen.  This book is about a discontent kingdom where a civil war is brewing. To keep the war from happening, Conner, a nobleman of the court, devises a plan to find an impersonator of the king’s long-lost son and install him as a puppet prince. Four orphans are recruited from orphanages throughout the country to compete for the role, including a defiant boy named Sage. Sage can see that Conner’s motives are questionable, yet he also knows that he must be chosen to play the prince or he will certainly be killed. The other boys know this as well.  All of them are locked into a deadly competition that their lives depend on.
